COMMUNITY
This is the best resource for staying in the know.
Dear GLOBE Community,

We hope to see you during GLOBE Community Town Hall this Friday, Jan. 29, 2021 at 3 p.m. During this live forum, you will be able to ask questions of GLOBE leadership as well as Reopening Committee medical and research experts. 

Please be sure to register for the Town Hall here.

In the event that we have an overflow of registrations, the Town Hall will be streamed live on Facebook and recorded for later viewing for those unable to attend.

For the past few months, we have used this special section to share updates from GLOBE's Reopening Committee on guidance to inform a safe return, and we will continue to address your questions and concerns here. GLOBE's COVID-19 tracker is updated each Wednesday at www.theglobeacademy.org. Please visit our site and click the graphic for weekly updates on the pandemic conditions with more detailed information about these data. If you have questions about GLOBE's Return-to-Campus Plan, please submit them here. We will do our best to answer as many questions as possible during the this week's Town Hall and then back here in the weeks after.

GENERAL UPDATES

Congratulations!!

Congratulations to GLOBE’s Elementary Reading Bowl team, who, under the leadership of 4th grade French teacher Caitlin Roe, came in 2nd place in DeKalb’s first ever virtual reading bowl competition!

From Our Nurses
This year more than ever, it is important for students to receive the flu vaccine. Because symptoms of the flu can mimic those of COVID, it is important to try to lessen the confusion. Also, with hospitals filling up with COVID patients, it is prudent to stay out of hospitals and doctor’s offices as much as possible. 
Lower Campus

You should’ve received an email directly from one of your Kindergarten - third grade child(ren)’s classroom teachers on the afternoon of Friday, January 15th.

CONNECTIONS
Well Done!

Congratulations to GLOBE band students Todd Goodwin and Nandini Vishwanathan on being awarded spots within the Georgia Music Educators Association District 4 Honor Band! 
 
Todd and Nandini prepared audition videos almost completely on their own, a complicated process that involved practice and preparation, technological expertise, and the ability to follow detailed step-by-step directions. Their auditions were judged against auditions from students in DeKalb, Rockdale, Newton, Butts, Jasper, and Morgan Counties. Todd placed fifth in the district on clarinet, and Nandini placed fourth on French horn. Way to go!
